THE REAL PEOPLE PLUS KARKOSA & ANTHONY PRICE
Iconic Liverpool band The Real People return to Birmingham for a pre xmas cracker. The Realies are a bucket list band that have to be seen live to be fully appreciated, a genuine force of nature. Expect a selection of career classics such as Rayners Lane, Window Pane, Dream On, People In The Telly etc. from their huge body of work.
The Realies are the godfathers of Brit Pop and a “massive influence” on Oasis (notably Columbia and Rocking Chair), Ocean Colour Scene, and Liam Gallagher who has tweeted of his love for the Realies extensively. Much loved by their peers and contemporaries to the extent that OCS walked on the stage at Brixton Academy carrying a Real People flag. Alan McGee described The Real People as “one of only three bands he regrets not signing, along with the La’s and The Stone Roses”.
Karkosa are an alternative rock band from Birmingham. thier inspirations consist of The Amazons, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Kasabian, Royal Blood and many more! Personally I thinkm they sound like summer bottled with a sound that echoes The Kooks and The Thrills.
Anthony Price supplements his umique voice semi acoustically. Think elements of Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison and dark brooding original songs.
